This book is a colossal disappointment!

Moving Targets and Other Stories of Valdemar (Valdemar Anthologies) Moving Targets and Other Stories of Valdemar by Mercedes Lackey

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
I've read 9 of the short stories thus far ... and only 3 of them are mildly appealing. So far, this book is a huge disappointment. It definitely did not help that the lead story (NOT a novella, IMHO) is essentially a Scooby Doo episode, complete with Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma, and Daphne, their van, AND a "I'd've gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for those meddling kids" line! Ick!

E likes Mercedes Lackey a lot. I generally find her stuff awfully predictable (mind you, the same can be said about some of my favorite authors too). However, as long as Lackey continues writing I will take great pleasure in asking E innocently, "So...does this one feature a plucky young heroine?"
